December 1 – Responsibility
I am beside you. A very human Jesus, who understands all your weaknesses, and sees too your struggles and conquests.
Remember, I was the Companion of the Weak. Ready to supply their hunger. Teaching My followers their responsibility towards all, not only those near and dear to them, but to the multitude.
“Lord, send them away that they may go into the villages and buy themselves victuals,” said My disciples, with no sympathy for the fainting, exhausted men, women, and children.
But I taught that Divine Sympathy includes responsibility. “Give ye them to eat,” was My reply. I taught that pity, without a remedy for the evil, or the need, is worthless.
“Give ye them to eat.” Wherever your sympathy goes, you must go too, if possible. Remember that in thinking of your own needs. Claim from Me the same attitude now.
The servant is not above his Master, certainly not in Spiritual attainments, and what I taught My disciples, I do.
So fainting and needy, by the lakeside of life, know that I will supply your need, not grudgingly, but in full measure.
“And let us not be weary in well doing:
for in due season we shall reap,
if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
